Learn by writing
The Master is based on the "learning by doing" methodology. In our case, learn by writing.
This is a fundamental point. The art of the script needs some theoretical knowledge that is essential, but excellence is only achieved with the writing, analysis and rewriting of the scripts, just as it happens in the professional world.
In this sense, the students have at all times the master's degree, the supervision AND the accompaniment of a teaching staff made up of scriptwriters with recognized careers and university professors specialized in the audiovisual field.
A faculty consisting of professional screenwriters and university teachers
The Master in Audiovisual Script Writing is a joint project of the University of Barcelona, the University of Lleida and the GAC, the professional association of screenwriters in Catalonia.
The teachers are scriptwriters with extensive professional experience and university professors from two prestigious university centers.
Internships in audiovisual companies of reference
A central element of the master's degree are the mandatory practices in leading audiovisual production companies and companies: TV3, Absolute Minority, Arca TV (Filmax), Somos Bat a Bat, ETC.
It would be nice to be able to put the logos. Students better recognize logos, with an equal dropdown. Or the link to the companies' website.
A master's degree to start a professional career with force
The main professional opportunities for the master are as a fiction scriptwriter, for entertainment programs, documentary scriptwriter, script editor, script analyst, being part of the content department of a production company, advertising creative, content manager, etc.
All those who have a university degree can opt for the master. It may especially interest graduates in Audiovisual Communication, Journalism, Fine Arts, Philology and other studies related to audiovisual and literary creation.
The main philosophy of The Master in Audiovisual Script Writing is to learn by writing scripts. In this sense, all subjects are practical, without forgetting the theoretical contents, essential to successfully face audiovisual writing.
80% of the subjects are compulsory. The remaining 20% is optional, allowing each student to design a study plan according to their needs and interests.
It is worth highlighting the three short film script workshops, where students will work in groups of five students, always with the same teacher-tutor. The workshops will take place throughout the course. In this way, students will be able to self-evaluate the learning process.
The evaluation of the subjects is continuous from the exercises and works that each teacher will have designed.
With the TFM (Final Master's Project) each student will write an audiovisual project with the support of a tutor. The master will provide students with the necessary contacts so that they can present their projects to production companies or professional pitchings.
